Your slide is prone to cracking, gets worse as the carb body becomes worn. Not much you can do other than buying a new slide (and eventually it will crack again) or getting late model carb. There is no cheap fix.

All should fit.

You will need to ensure the TPS is adjusted properly. Hot start changed to a cable though I do not recall when. Any carb from 03 on is a good choice (though I am sure I'll corrected, I hope, if I am mistaken).

Keep in mind, another used carb could be even more worn out than yours, so buyer beware.

With the help/advice of William1 and others I did the same. I replaced my carb with one from a YZ450. I got it off of fleabay for a reasonable price (cheaper than a new part). It bolts right up and works better than the original.
